Saint Jean Carbon announced that it has been invited by the National Research Council (NRC) of Canada to take part in a special interest group that will develop and propose standards for graphene made by exfoliation methods from natural graphite. The project will be broken into a number of phases; the first phase will take approximately one year to complete.

The NRC sees an excellent opportunity for graphene producers to work together in collaboration with the NRC to determine the optimal techniques to properly characterize graphene and develop standardized methods for use in confidently comparing graphene materials, thereby strengthening the graphite industry as a whole.
